Students in the Environmental Studies Program are strongly advised to become members and get involved in professional student chapter activities. A number of student organizations on campus are active in environmental issues.
The purpose of this organization is to promote student interest in the environment, specifically in the fields of water treatment, waste water treatment and global pollution mitigation. The chapter also provides an avenue to exchange information and ideas between students and members of both the NJWEA and the Water Environment Federation.
GEO is a service-oriented environmental group at Rowan University. Its goals are to raise awareness of environmental issues on and around campus, and to increase activism amongst the Rowan community. GEO is active in strengthening the recycling program at Rowan, specifically in the dorms. GEO also participates in beautifying the campus through numerous campus clean-ups during the school year. Off campus, GEO is involved with many outside organizations such as The Coalition for Peace and Justice, Marine Mammal Wildlife Stranding Center, Adopt-a-Highway, American Oceans Campaign, and The Unplug Salem Campaign.
EWB is a non-profit organization founded in 2000 at the University of Colorado. The Rowan University EWB chapter was started in 2003. Engineers Without Borders student chapters help communities around the world obtain clean water, treat waste water, produce energy, improve shelter, and develop sustainable industries. Each project is initiated by and completed with the help of those in need. Residents are also trained to operate and maintain any new system provided. In this way, EWB chapters help struggling communities to help themselves.
EWB involves universities around the world, putting students at the fore front of every operation. Each project is executed by students under the supervision of faculty and/or professional engineers from partnering engineering firms.
